SW recipe: Spring vegetable orzo

Syns per serving:2½

Ingredients:

300g dried orzo pasta
250g asparagus, trimmed
100g baby spinach
100g frozen peas
300ml vegetable stock
300g fresh or frozen broad beans, podded
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
Low-calorie cooking spray
8 spring onions, thinly sliced
2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
2 red chillies, deseeded and finely chopped
50g fresh parmesan (or vegetarian alternative), finely grated (optional)

Method:

Cook the orzo according to the packet instructions, then drain.
Meanwhile, break or cut the tips off the asparagus and set aside. Put the stems in a large pan with the spinach, peas and stock and cook over a high heat for 5-6 minutes, or until the asparagus is tender. Transfer to a food processor and blend until fairly smooth.
In a separate pan, boil the asparagus tips and broad beans in lightly salted water for 2-3 minutes. Drain and set aside.
Place a large frying pan sprayed with low calorie cooking spray over a medium heat. Add the spring onions, garlic and half the chillies and stir-fry for 1 minute. Turn the heat to high, add the orzo and the veg purée and stir-fry for 3-4 minutes, or until piping hot.
Stir in the asparagus tips, beans and half the parmesan and cook
for 1-2 minutes. Serve sprinkled with the remaining chilli and
parmesan (if using) and season to taste.

Slimming Tip 3 – Plan Plan Plan
Fail to plan is planning to fail. Make a solid plan not only for the foods and meal you are going to enjoy but also what might get in your way.
